these common sense gun rules. >> toure, to julian's point, dianne feinstein introduced her bill, which is an assault weapons ban bill. as we saw in the latest polls, there's broad support, 58% for this. support among gun owning households is 45%. let's hear jay carney on the bill itself. take a listen to jay. >> the president supports renewal of the assault weapons ban. he supports addressing or limiting the magazine capacity of ammunition -- the capacity of ammunition clips. the fact that they're hard, some harder than others, doesn't mean we shouldn't move forward on them. >> is that the acknowledgment of what julian was just saying, that in a sense they're going for everything, but if they've got to get it through the house, they're more likely to get some kind of rul on high capacity magazines than they are on assault weapons. >> the house does seem to be a potential problem, not just from the right but also from some on the left who are in rural areas. as julian was saying, there is tremendous support for the individual policies of the president, even "the washington post" polled

in this country is just belied by all the statistics, and on assault weapons, as dianne feinstein pointed out, when we had an assault weapons ban in 1994, we saw assault weapons crime go down 66%, 70%. steve is right, the reason we see the nra as marketing assault weapons to 10-year-olds is because shooting sports like hunting are on the decrease, and what the nra is fundamentally trying to do and what this is all about, everything that they do is about selling more guns. and the parallels to the tobacco industry become very clear. it was when we realized that the tobacco industry was trying to sell cigarettes and tobacco products to children when there was a national revulsion in this doesn't, and i think if you ask most parents, they will tell you that they think the answer to most of our children's problems does not lie in getting more cross fire in our schools or cross fires in our play grounds. so i think this is, again, one of the things that shows the extremism, the out of touch nature, the tone deafness of the nra and its supporters and it's one of the things -- one of the reasons we

"inspire" magazine in which he was the prime mover behind, the magazine or this is the article that he read that justified to him the killing of children -- the killing of women. >> the problem really is concealable handguns. only 2% of the people that we've arrested for guns in the last two years have had assault weapons. we don't want them on the streets. make no mistake about it. but the problem is the handgun. 60% of the murders in new york city are caused by handguns. >> white house correspondent brianna keilar joins me now. with feinstein's bill focusing
